    I have an almost 6 month Chinese goose that I always thought was a boy since he road my duck every time they got in the small pool I have for them. I thought he, now she, was breeding the duck but he would never breed my other Toulouse goose I have.

    Now today that very same goose laid an egg so that makes him a her, why would she try to breed my duck? Has anyone seen this before?

    Hi Dennis, it´s very common. Just shows she´s ready to breed. Often they´ll do it with other geese too.

    Haha, I´ve never seen an unwilling duck yet under a goose...usually mine have been happy with it. Those that aren´t in breeding phase clear off pretty quickly!
